I was introduce to this drink about 3 year ago. I was having trouble with my skin. I friend asked if I ever heard of probiotics. He then introduced me to " what he called" the ULTIMATE PROBIOTIC. Needless to say, everything cleared, and a lot of other problem got better. Store bought Kefir is good, but filled with sugar and preservatives. Did I mention "IT CURVES THE APPETITE". After purchasing my own grains off the Internet, I wanted to share the recipe with you. Hope you enjoy!
